How the Personal Injury Attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey Can Help You

A Helping Hand When Injured Floridians Need It

When you’re involved in an accident, it can throw your entire life off course. One second you’re starting a family and in the running for a promotion, and the next you’re lying in a hospital bed trying to recover from something completely unexpected.


You know that you need medical care to get better, but you spend the entire time worrying. How are you going to pay for this? Where is your family going to find the money to cover your lost income? Will that promotion – or even your job – still be there by the time you get better?


These are the kinds of things that no one wants to have to go through. It’s why people in South Florida try to be as careful as possible – wearing safety gear, driving the speed limit, and taking whatever precautions we can. Unfortunately, as the experienced injury attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey know all too well, even the most safety-minded person in the world can’t always protect themselves or their families if someone else acts in a negligent manner.


In a perfect world, no one would ever have to pay for someone else’s mistake, but the world we live in is far from perfect. Our goal is to give you a voice when you need it most, and make sure that you and the people that you love are treated in a fair and equitable manner. It isn’t about using your injury to get money, but rather making sure that when someone else knocks you off of your feet, you have the ability to get back up and keep going.

Fighting Back for Public Safety in Florida

Most people in and around Ft. Lauderdale want to be good and do what’s right. If they see someone in trouble, they try to help. If they realize they’re doing something that’s hurting others, they stop. Unfortunately, this is not true for everyone out there. They deny wrongdoing. They justify harmful actions. Their first thought is to protect themselves – even at the cost of others.


This is the reason that all societies have laws and punishments. Without a set of rules and regulations in place that individuals and organizations have to follow, and a method by which they can be held accountable for their actions, some will simply keep behaving in harmful ways. If you want to have a safer world for you and your family, it’s up to you to call them on it.


When we take a case at Lawlor, White & Murphey, it’s because we strongly believe that doing so will not only bring you justice, but also help to protect the public by decreasingly the likelihood that someone else will get hurt in the same way. This is true for cases involving both individuals and organizations.


If people who habitually drink and drive read about a drunk driver having to pay $500,000 in damages to someone, it’s likely to make them think twice before doing it again. And when businesses are held accountable in this way, there are often clauses that legally force them to change their ways or suffer even worse consequences.
